  1. Playoff League.

    I'm in a playoff league. 10 teams PPR, 6 point passing TDs. The setup is as follows: Top 4 scoring teams after the 1st two weeks (Divisional and Wildcard rounds) advance to the second round. In the second round the scores reset to zero and the top 2 scoring teams in the third week (Conference Championship) move on to the final round. Week 1 and 2 scores do not carry over In the final round whoever scores more points in the Superbowl wins. Scores from week 3 do not carry over they reset. The Roster allows for 1 QB 1 RB 2 WR 2 Flex (W/R/T) 1 TE 1 K 4 Bench spots I'm picking fourth and my options are either Michael Thomas (who will play 1 more game in the 1st round) or Patrick Mahomes (has the bye so will only play 1 game in the opening round). FYI Lamar Jackson, Drew Brees, and Alvin Kamara were the first 3 picks. Go with Thomas or Mahomes?
  2. John Brown

  3. John Brown

    I'm getting pre-game jitters and I'm thinking of plugging John Brown in my flex (0.5 PPR). I know he has the most difficult match-up this week and he will be seeing a lot of Gilmore, but something tells me he might do pretty well today. He had 5 (on 11 targets) for 69 the last time they met and may see a lot of targets this week too. I know he also has the potential to be completely shut down, since Belichick may focus his game plan on locking up Brown. My other options are Crowder against Pittsburgh (which is not very a ver friendly match-up either) or Greg Ward (who is a complete wildcard) against Dallas. Am I being too cute, and should I just stick with Crowder? Thanks for your responses in advance.
  4. Greg Ward

    I'm really considering starting Greg Ward at my flex. With Agholor likely being out and given Arcega inability to impress I think Ward can have a solid game. He has 9 targets in each of his last 2 games and was good last week, albeit it was against the Redskins. My other two options are John Brown and Crowder. I don't trust Crowder (I get the feeling he may lay another 3 for 30 type dude) and Brown has a terrible match-up even though he may see his fair share of targets. Am I crazy or is Ward a decent start given my options?
  5. Who should I start in my flex? J. Brown, OJ Howard, or Crowder? 0.5 PPR
  6. 2 teams: 12 Team .5 PPR (Won 1 week Matchup by 25.8) QB-Ryan RB- Kamara RB- A. Jones WR- A. Cooper WR- J. Brown TE- Kittle FLEX- A. Miller K- Gould DEF- New Orleans Bench: J. Crowder, Conley, L. Murray, G. Ward, G. Tate, J. Crowder 8 Team PPR (Won 2 week Matchup by 0.5 pts) QB- Brees RB- Chubb RB- Ingram WR- Godwin WR- D. Adams TE- Hooper FLEX- M. Gordon K- Butker DEF- Baltimore Bench: R. Wilson, K. Allen, D. Freeman, H. Hunter, Lockett Also made the final in my PPR Guillotine league, but since that line-up changes so much week to week, I'll leave that out.
  7. Which two give me the best chance to win it all? Miller, J. Brown, Crowder, Tate, Conley, Or Greg Ward?
  8. Dick move or am I overreacting?

    Thanks for all the input guys. At this point I'm over it. I'll roll with the guys that got me here. Feel he was totally within his right to put the claim in, just feel it's a little dickish is all.
  9. So I advanced to the championship game in a league that has been operating for 10 years. This is my first Championship appearance after so many close calls and much heartbreak. Everyone has been mentioning that to me and are aware that this is my first legitimate shot at a title. I put in a waiver claim for Perriman. I figured I would get him, since the guy I’m playing in the championship game doesn’t have any FAAB left and I still had $1 left. To my surprise, the guy I beat in the semi-final (most successful manager in the history of our league and #1 overall seed this year by a country mile, whereas I have never had much success in this league and I had a rollercoaster of a season that had me stumbling in at the 6th seed with a 5-8 record, and just getting hot in the last two weeks to make the championship game) put in a claim, and he got Perriman since he had more FAAB (his $5 to my $1) left than me. Our league is low stakes ($30 fee per team) and it’s always been more about the honor that comes with winning it than the prize money. 3rd place gets $36, so he is playing for something, but I’m not sure if that really justifies the move. I know I should have saved more FAAB to avoid this situation, but it still doesn’t sit right. Not sure he needed to make the move since his WRs are Edelman and Thomas, and he usually plays Metcalf at the flex. The move could have potentially helped put me over the top since my options at flex are Crowder and J. Brown. Am I blowing this out of proportion, since he is still playing for something even if it is basically his entry fee, or is this a situation where he should have at least waited for the teams in contention for the championship to make their moves first?
  10. Pick 2 to start

    John Brown, Anthony Miller, J. Crowder, C. Conley, or B. Perriman (Pending waiver claim on Perriman. I still have FAAB and my opponent does not. As long as one of the other teams in the consolation games, no reward for 3rd or punishment for last, does not pull a dick move he'll be on my team)? .5 PPR
  11. Start Conley or A. Miller in my flex? .5 PPR.
  12. Who do I flex?

    A. Miller, G. Tate, Perriman, Crowder, or Breida? .5 PPR.
  13. I'm in a PPR guillotine league (lowest scoring team of the week is eliminated and their entire team is put on waivers). There are only 3 teams left and waivers are done via FAAB. Fortunately, I am the only team with FAAB dollars left, so I am guaranteed to get whichever free agent I put a bid in for. Here is my team: QB- Mahomes RB- Kamara RB- Henry WR- J. Jones WR- Edelman TE- Kelce DEF- Pats Bench- Steelers As it stands, I'm going to drop the Steelers for Michael Thomas, Julio Jones for Chris Godwin, and Kamara for Chris Carson (Taking the gamble, because if I survive this week then I will be guaranteed to get either D. Cook or McCaffrey from waivers; depending on which team gets bounced). Now in addition to my mentioned moves, I was thinking of dropping Mahomes and picking up Watson. I could also drop Edelman and pick-up Watson, but I'm a little hesitant to do so, since the other guys need some help at WR and Edelman may help them more than Julio. What should I do?
